Our guest this episode is Chris Irwin, Co-Founder and Director of Wellbeing Through Sport.
Following successfully exiting two businesses under the EdStart brand, Chris took his passion for improving children’s lives to launch Wellbeing Through Sport to connect physical activity to wellbeing and mental health support for children.
During the episode we discuss Chris’s career as a professional rugby league player and how he started and scaled the EdStart brand to become an industry leader in alternative education and sports coaching. Chris opens up about his decision to move on and the acquisition process in detail, a great insight for those business owners thinking about planning for the future.
We also talk about his vision for Wellbeing Through Sport and how he is working collaboratively to increase the impact of the programme.
